I have a problem.. not sure what it is. Hoping its fixable ,, Easily..(eyeroll)
117k miles on 2000 outback wagon.
Drove car home , started smoking. Tranny was over full. Drove it home and had no other issues.
Got home, drained and refilled. Ran normal the few times i drove it around,,
Now, when it downshiftts on a hill ,,, the engine kicks down,, but the car doesnt pick up speed,, i dont know if this is "slippping" or not.
But i know it isnt right. I have a 1996 wagon with 210000 miles and it doesnt behave like this.
According to the dipstick the tranny fluid is to the full hot line.
Maybe someone put a wrong dipstick in ? IDK Its a plastic yellow hoop top dipstick. I am also throwing a code CEL. IDK what it is yet. But it didnt have it on before today.
im sick to my stomache. Any advice is appreciated. Ill check the engine code later when i get home.
ps. It runs and accelerates and goes 70 mph on flat stretches,,
